    Not come across this brand before. Brief look on the website suggests they are a similiar outfit to TOG.

    Their modus operandi seems to be to belittle off the shelf AND custom devices, (therefore clearly making theirs the best). Walk patient over a mat, "interpret" the 2D information and dish out a device (library one presumes). Doesn't look like the sort of company you could just ring up and order a pair of devices from.

    Had a look at their website too - none of the email addresses work. Pt has been very happy with them. They are very similar to a more flexible interpod. They would appear to have a similar library. Nothing special, nothing hugely offensive.

    The usual though - ours are different and better etc - still, if I try to change the patient to something else, I could be on a loser. Besides which.......they work for her...which is a shame!

    This is a Canadian company, how did they get on a cruse.... Another crap lab/clinic/orthotics road show jumping on the orthotic cash cow. We have them at all our trade shows here in Ontario. Devices look most like Footmaxx, similar scheme however sounds like they aren't misrepresenting them so badly or charging full custom price :S
    Footmaxx will send you some based on a foam box if you're desperate but the cost to you is equal or more than true custom from a reputable lab. Even if you went to the length of getting something, your cost will likely be very high for what you are getting.
